Nigeria to spend N100 billion on new plan for cattle, other animals

The Nigerian government has adopted National Livestock Transformation Plan.

It says the plan is not targeted at only cattle but the entire animal husbandry sector in the country.

Under the plan, N100 billion will be spent with the federal government contributing 80 per cent in grant, while states will contribute land, project implementation structure, personnel and 20 per cent cost of the project.

The plan will remain voluntary for state governments that want.

This was disclosed on Thursday by Gov. Dave Umahi of Ebonyi after the National Economic Council meeting in Abuja. Mr Umahi heads the sub-committee on herders/farmers crisis.
